Amy Whitehead happy with top ten finish at Commonwealth Games


Running Feat's Amy Whitehead was pleased to finish 9th in yesterday's Commonwealth Games marathon.

Although her time of 2.35.06 was outside her personal best, she was delighted to achieve her aim of a finishing position in the top ten as she represented her country. Scotland's Susan Partridge was 6th in 2.32.18 and Amy's England team mate Louise Damon was 7th in 2.32.59. Unfortunately England's other representative, Aly Dixon, had to pull out with an injury.

After the race, Amy praised the enthusiastic crowds who lined the route in Glasgow and the 'hilly and fun' two lap course.

Stay tuned for Amy's full report from the Commonwealth Games.
